    I watched Aliens the directors cut yesterday and it wasn't as good as I remembered. Still enjoyed it but it could have been a blinder with less macho bullshit and BFGs.

    I watched it a couple of months ago, and have to confess, all that macho bullshit and BFGs had me completely hooked....and then horribly dismayed the way it all counted for nought against the Xenos. I think the stressing of the squad's obnoxiously smug gungho attitude and reliance on tech' is the way the film sets up the whole 'rise and fall' scenario, where, imho, the film's horror element comes from.
